    But my favourite shot is below.

    10 of the 11 Fielders were within a few metres of the bat.

    Most of the Pommy team should be charged with multiple infringements because they are impersonating test cricketers.
    Was a good old nail-biting finish on the day.

    Showers for the cricket

    Clouds are also expected over Hobart as the final Ashes Test gets underway tomorrow.

    "It's basically some hit and miss showers around," Mr Narramore said.
    "Probably more common in the afternoon and evenings but definitely they could be around anytime."

    There is even the chance of a thunderstorm on Saturday, but Mr Narramore said that storms should be pretty isolated.
    "It should be OK for most days.
    "We just could see some slight interruptions here and there with those showers passing through."
    Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago ...

    ^ so the Aussies have been doing a rain dance, 3-1 looks much less impressive than 3-0

    ^Dream on

    England are paying about 7.50, the bookies are taking the piss and the correct odds are write your own ticket.

    A bargain, never seen a poor bookie though. 3.5:1 for a draw for you lot.

    So you think it's a foregone conclusion that a team that couldn't beat the wings off a fly will win the next test?


    Thank you for that you've finally shown that you have a sense of humour.

    With absolutely nothing to play for beyond avoiding a 5-0.

    Is that how far English test cricket has sunk?

    Actually, yes, it is.

    Soap dodgers win the toss and asked Australia to bat.

    Weather is overcast, warmish (for Tassie) green top wicket ... Cummings said he would have bowled first also.

    Pink ball test
